Craft the Doors: Attach three precut 20- by 30-inch pieces of foam core together with spray adhesive. Attach a piece of black paper, cut to size, to the top piece of foam core using spray adhesive. Insert the rectangular piece of two 6-inch stainless steel T-hinges between the first and second pieces of foam core on one of the short sides; “screw” in place. Place a 6 1/2-inch handle on the opposite side; “screw” in place. Cover exposed edges of the foam core with silver duct tape, folding any excess to the back. Make two more doors. Adhere to house door with heavy-duty self-adhesive Velcro. Cut five coffin shapes from black and gray kraft paper. Paint letters on gray coffins with red acrylic paint to spell “morgue” and attach to black coffins with double-sided tape. Hang a plastic chain above the door and attach coffin cutouts with hot-glue.
Using black paper or fabric, bats can be traced and cut out to decorate your front door. They can be put on the front door via tape or any other method that you like. A bat template can be found for free on a lot of different websites. Spiders can be created with Styrofoam balls. These are spray painted black. Black pipe cleaners are used as legs, and voila! These Halloween door decorations have a life of their own, and boy do they look the part. For something a little more cartoony, a different color can be used – which also creates an intense look depending on the colors used.
Welcome guests inside your home – if they dare – by creating this unique front door decoration for Halloween. Little trick-or-treaters will be amused and a little bit scared by your imagination and creativity, while most parents will find it downright funny. Stuff the striped socks with newspaper to create a little depth and added bulk. Use a worn-our pair of pointy-toe heels to finish. Any mat will do as long as it inscribed with a warm greeting (it’s not as funny without the warm greeting). This fun front door decoration never gets old as most people have seen The Wizard of Oz at least once.

Make the Wreath: Cut 150 6-inch-long strips of 2-inch-wide black grosgrain ribbon. Fold the strips in half and attach them to a 16-inch foam wreath form with straight pins, layering them on top of each other to create a ruffle effect. Cut out a silhouette of a witch from black kraft paper. Attach it to the center of a 16-inch round clear piece of acrylic with double-sided tape. Hot-glue the edges of the acrylic round to the back of the wreath form. Finish with a bow with long tails.
